a pakistan on this particular trip. did he talk about what pakistan was not on his itinerary? guest: he did not talk about that specifically. it was very focused on afghanistan, but also on the border between afghanistan and pakistan. he did not say specifically why he did not go. i think it is pretty clear for a couple of reasons. the u.s. is trying to gauge just how much cooperation they can get from pakistan going forward. pakistan has a lot of u.s. trainers that have been working intensely with their special forces, and as a result of that, withheld some of the decade that went with them. they also repelled some of the partnership on the war on terrorism, so to speak. they are still trying to gauge that. for now, in the past, the key relationship between the u.s. and pakistan and the military have been between admiral mullen and his pakistan counterpart, the army chief of staff. i think that this point, the u.s. is still trying to weigh what they can do to move this cooperation forward with pakistan. host: the defense policy reporter a bloomberg news, thank you for being on the "washing

on the middle east and pakistan. and became the new gold standard and we have now a generation, i call it al-qaeda 2.0. in many respects they're the new version of the digital jihadists. so when you're talking about the fact that we've historically said, well, a terrorist is probably going to be a muslim, may open the muslim east, if you don't fit the profile chances are you don't have to worry. because in the book you say that's no longer the model. >> that's right. the heart of this is actually an american citizen anwar al-awlaki, he's a digital jihad its, whether he's e-mailing or blogging or skyping, he's kind of like the facebook friend from hell. he's using the negotiate networking against us and spreading the ideology of hate. what's frightening there's a documented case of home grown terrorism every two to three weeks since january of 2009. something we didn't see a decade ago. >>. >> mike: what are the signs a parent ought to be worry about, if their child is being recruited or sought after. >> one of the things we are see is the american cleric. if you look at the cases of united s

. pakistan? where would you focus your attention? >> pakistan's an important challenge. there's not much we can do about it. we've tried all sorts of things there and nothing seems to work. i would say revitalizing our relationships in asia and the pacific. that's where history the going to be written in the 21st surgeriry. i would say involved there. better relations with ind ka ya with the countries of southeast asia. doing something about our energy situation that we're less vulnerable on vagaries of price and supply that would go a long way. again, i'd focus more at home on competitiveness, on improving our immigration policy. on the quality of our schools. on the quality of our transportation infrastructure and so forth. again, we have got to retore the foundations of american power. that's a prerequisite if we're going to lead in the world either by what we do or our example. >> restoration is the theme. i hope it's the subject of the next book. thanks so much for joining us. >> thanks, andrea. >> it's very provocative richard. >>> a word of warning the images you're about to see is h
